Comparing Different Types of EVs

Learn More About Ford All-Electric Vehicles, Hybrids & PHEVs from Milnes Ford

Ready to transition to electric power? Your future miles across Michigan can become more efficient and environmentally friendly behind the wheel of a Ford electric vehicle. Milnes Ford has a variety of Ford electric vehicles on our Lapeer, MI lot, but which type suits your driving lifestyle the best?

There are Ford EVs (all-electric vehicles), Hybrids, and Plug-In Hybrids for Flint shoppers to pick out. Allow us to break down these types of electric vehicles so you can make the right purchase.


Hybrids switch between different types of power. Ford Hybrids use regenerative braking and hybrid powertrains - with an electric motor - to move forward and achieve maximum fuel efficiency. Hybrid vehicles are far more fuel efficient than generic models, earning significantly higher fuel economy ratings on Michigan highways and throughout city driving.

Hybrids work well for city driving, whether Michigan motorists are cruising through Lapeer, Detroit, or Flint.

Some examples of Ford Hybrid vehicles include the Ford Escape and Ford Maverick. Ford Escape Hybrid models are fuel-efficient compact SUVs that earn up to 44 miles per gallon in cities. The Ford Maverick is an innovative compact truck. It's the first truck to be powered by a standard hybrid powertrain, which earns 42 city miles per gallon.

Plug-In Hybrids

Plug-In Hybrids, also known as PHEVs, combine gas and electric power. They have an all-electric range, but the mileage range and battery capacity are far lower than those seen in full EVs. Plug-In Hybrid models rely on a powertrain that pairs an electric motor with a gas engine.

Pay attention to all-electric range, which helps to be above 30 miles, and MPGe. This means miles per gasoline equivalent, which combines estimated fuel economy ratings as the vehicle switches between battery power and hybrid power. The Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid is a good example, offering 37 miles of all-electric range and 100 MPGe.

Plug-In Hybrids work well if Michigan motorists are making frequent trips to Flint, as you can rely on electric power the whole way there before switching to hybrid power for the trip back home.

EVs - All-Electric Vehicles

All-electric vehicles, better known as EVs, rely solely on battery power. No gasoline is necessary, which saves Imlay City motorists money. These EVs use electric motors with a battery pack. Most electric vehicles have high battery capacities and offer extended-range battery packs.

EVs need to be recharged, and there are simple and affordable charging solutions. Charge your Ford EV at your Michigan home or at public charging stations on the go in a matter of hours.

All-electric vehicles work best for trips to Detroit and back with ease. EVs are often eligible for exclusive federal tax incentives, potentially saving Michigan drivers thousands of dollars.

Some examples of Ford EVs include the Ford F-150 Lightning, with 230 to 300 miles of all-electric range, and the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which maxes out at 314 miles of all-electric driving range.
